I just upgraded to 10.5.5 from Tiger and my USB drive that I have plugged into my Airport Extreme is no longer recognized and does not show up on my desktop or finder. The only place it is showing up is in the Airport Utility Disks screen. It has it's name and it's capacity correct, the only other setting it shows is Users: 0. On the file sharing tab, I have Enable file sharing enabled, With Airport Extreme password and Read and Write selected. Any ideas?
QUOTE Thanks

I found the problem. I had to plug the USB drive straight into the MBP and repair the permissions.
